Real-time TV added to Sprint mobiles - 11/16/03 03:15 PM

NEW YORK (AP) -- Sprint Corp. is adding a television service for cell phones with real-time programs, albeit somewhat choppy, from cable networks.

TV at your house runs at about 20 frames per second. This cell will run at about 1 to 2 frames per second. Very chopy, however this is a big step forward toward the next generation of cell phones.

The new MobiTV service, available starting this week, will cost $9.99 per month in addition to the monthly fee of $15 that Sprint subscribers pay to use the Internet data connection on their mobile phones.

The audio will play a continuous stream.
